The northern harrier is a ground-nesting, low-flying hawk with a distinctive owl-like face. As they are permanent residents here in Kansas, I see them often. The males are snowy white underneath with inky black wingtips. This scene is very like one I saw last spring near where I live, but I have only memories—no pictures. Bird photographer Ashok Khosia graciously gave me permission to use one of his photos as a reference.
